Greece, a land of evergreen forests,
towering mountains, lakes and rivers.
It doesn΄t sound like the descriptions in most travel books. But when last did you venture into the country΄s four northern regions - Macedonia, Thrace, Epirus and Thessaly?
Clearly laid out and stunningly illustrated, this book will take you far from the tourist-filled beaches and open your eyes to an area of Greece that deserves to be visited by everyone at least once. Discover Byzantine churches and Turkish mosques; silk towns, fur towns and even a reborn town; the legendary Mt Olympos and the mystical Meteora; the crystal-clear rivers of the Zagorohoria and the jagged peaks beyond.
To be used in picking out an individual location, dipped into from time to time, or simply indulged from cover to cover, this book is indispensable to anyone who wants to complete their picture of Greece.
